District 1 is now the Southeast Community Organization!
Our district council has a new name! The Southeast Community Organization is your connection to city and county officials. We guide you to local government resources and keep you informed of issues that arise in our neighborhoods. In collaboration with community members in our district, we address issues around business development, the environment, parks, transportation, safety, housing and other matters. We work with you to help you build relationships with your neighbors and create the kind of community you would like to see.
Got COVID Concerns? Contact Us
Though the SECO office is closed to the public, southeast residents are invited to call our phone line and leave a message if you have questions about resources. Betsy or Shaquonna will get back to you as soon as we are able. Please be safe, and keep an eye our for neighbors who may need assistance.

As of July 25, 2020, per the Governor's Executive Order 20-81, people in Minnesota are required to wear a face covering in all indoor businesses and public indoor spaces, unless alone. Workers are required to wear a face covering when working outdoors in situations where social distancing cannot be maintained. Research has shown that use of face coverings can greatly reduce the risk of infection when combined with other prevention efforts such as social distancing and hand hygiene.
In order to expand the state’s ability to mitigate this disease, additional testing sites and laboratory capacity are being created to meet growing demand. For the latest information on how to receive a COVID-19 test, visit mn.gov/covid19.
